Sim graduated from Imperial College London in 2010 with a First Class Honours degree in Mathematics. He was awarded an academic prize for excellence in applied mathematics and graduated in the top 5 in his cohort.
Sim’s passion for his subject and enjoyment in supporting others learn led him to embark on a career within education. He completed the prestigious Teach First Leadership Development Programme in 2014 while teaching mathematics at a challenging secondary school in Kent. Sim was known for building strong relationships with all of his classes based on trust and mutual respect no matter how challenging the circumstances. His dedication, patience and subject knowledge allowed him to break down many students’ misconceptions and resulted in his classes achieving excellent results. After his first year, he was appointed KS5 Raising Attainment Lead and led the course which delivered the school’s first A grades. He previously has led students to achieving outstanding results through teaching at a leading South Kensington independent college, an outstanding grammar school in Kingston and 8 years of private tutoring.
Sim has recently left classroom teaching to work as a Management Consultant at PwC, however remains involved in education through mentoring A-level students in challenging circumstances. Sim’s diverse teaching background allows him to adapt his teaching style to suit the needs of his students in order for them to achieve and exceed their goals. In his personal time, Sim enjoys travelling, cycling, playing football and chess.
Sim qualified to teach Maths in 2013, and holds a Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) from Canterbury Christchurch University College.

"I just want to share how brilliant Sim has been, patient, supportive, and a kind face to my daughter who struggles academically. He has encouraged her, helped her with organisation, planning and prioritisation, and delivered her learning in small sizeable chunks she can manage with. Thank you for enabling us to have Sim, and who knows there maybe a need for him to return with another one of our children."
